Crowne Plaza Christchurch hotel opens in New Zealand
Promising to be the largest upscale hotel in the Christchurch CBD with 204 modern rooms, a new café, bar and restaurant and four modern event spaces, the hotel opened its doors on Friday June 30.
The return of the brand to the city is a significant milestone for the current owners of the former office building, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), and Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism.
The hotel location radiates history. In fact, one of Christchurch's first hotels, The Golden Fleece, opened on the same site in 1851 after the legendary 'First Four Ships' arrived with the city's early settlers.
The new Crowne Plaza Christchurch opened on Friday 30 June 2017 on the corner of Colombo and Armagh streets opposite Victoria Square. ■
